For those of us who regularly wear undershirts, it’s fair to say we have our favorites.
Likewise, the Towncraft 50/50 undershirts have a huge fan-following.
The unfortunate truth is that sometimes our favorite undershirts either get discontinued by the manufacturer or changed so dramatically that the updated versions bear little resemblance to the originals we loved so much.
I have seen many visitors come to the site in search of suitable replacements for their no-longer-made but favorite undershirts like the Target Merona 95/5.
The JC Penney Towncraft undershirts command a large following, and as such it has become one of the highest visited and commented pages on my site.
Towncraft 50/50 Undershirts Replacement
It’s unclear why JCPenney discontinued the Towncraft line, as it had such a loyal following.
If you ask JCPenney, they will refer you to their new Stafford 60/40 or 100% cotton line.
But, as mentioned above, those products bear no resemblance to the vintage loose knit weave Towncraft 50/50 undershirts that are beloved by thousands.
Well, for all those loyal fans, there is new hope.

I’ve had Towncraft 50/50 for years and they are getting a bit worn.
So, I’ve been looking for V-neck undershirts that have a deep vee and have had little success in finding them.
The Retro-fit V-neck is perfect.
It is very much like the Towncraft 50/50 undershirts and is great.
I’m very pleased with this shirt and so hope they are available for a long time. – Geoff Swanberg
Bought a pack of the retro fit tshirts a few weeks ago, and I really liked them, so I picked up 4 more packs today. – Brian (tug reader)
